From The FFRF


“A religious person is a dangerous person. He may not become a thief or a murderer, but he is liable to become a nuisance. He carries with him many foolish and harmful superstitions, and he is possessed with the notion that it is his duty to give these superstitions to others. That is what makes trouble. Nothing is so worthless as superstition. . . .”

— Marilla M. Ricker, "Science Against Creeds," I Am Not Afraid Are You? (1917).
